Mathematical Immanence

Mathematical Immanence (2022) is projected as a video installation consisting of four screens and 20 methacrylate panels suspended from the ceiling.

The four screens reproduce the flamenco dance of Paco Hidalgo, performed in a green monochrome space where the same methacrylates exposed in the video installation are suspended from the ceiling. The methacrylate panels, both in the final video installation and in the green monochrome stage where the flamenco piece is performed, simulate the patterns of the harmonic rods used in the construction of flamenco guitars.

Paco Hidalgo alters his performance at certain moments by means of musical silences, motor repetitions, letter substitutions, and other rhetorical devices, with the help of what I have conceived as a stroboscopic image to accentuate the manifestation of motor apraxia and Wernicke's aphasia. In addition, as the dance piece progresses, the dancer interacts with the methacrylate panels suspended from the ceiling. These harmonic patterns are reconstructed in space by the methacrylate plates depending on the perspective of the camera and deconstructed in the sequential movements of the camera.
